Compared to other teams, I would say "average".
Our best youngsters are with the team right now (Price, Subban, Pac, DD, Weber, Eller, and hopefully Yemelin).
There is nothing amazing in Hamilton. Some solids 2nd, 3rd line players and a bunch of 4th liners. On "D", no exceptional talents. Maybe Mitera will finally comes out of his shell. Tinordi is 2-3 years away from NHL play. Same with Beaulieu.
If some drafts helped the team, more of the drafts were failure, especillay in 1st rounds. The trading of second round assets for rentals like Moore and Wiz, did not help.
We are still lacking real offensive two-top-line potential (a sniper).
Anyway, the core of the actual team is signed long-term (Cammy, Pleks, Gomez, Cole, Gionta)... MaxPac should be given a longer deal next season. A.K. is and will always remain a question mark.
DD and Eller could develop to become bonafide 2nd/3rd line centers.
